    It's true, it's just quite a lot slower and has only a fraction of the features.

    The benefit of creating a clean break codebase.

    I think they call this "tips and tricks" or something, I miss read it as "tricks for tips" the first time and had a good chuckle as I was in Thailand.

    I thought Edge did quite well in terms of speed?

    if use firefox and 10 million addons, with the browser cache in a ramdisk, it works at lightspeed

    and won't have 50 million MFT entries every month to clear to speed to PC back up

    It keeps telling me that edge is quicker and better than my chrome is, and that I don't have the latest version of office in the hope I'll panic and buy a new version when mine works fine.

    I got the message against Chrome and thought the MS should get to somewhere else and then next thing trying to log on to my mobile phone provider account failed in Chrome - simply could not enter my mobile phone number - to my disgust it worked in Edge - felt so grubby after.

    Re: "Microsoft Edge is safer than Firefox" pop up in Win 10 today

    Ah win10..... I've taken to using google docs and libre office for everything off win10, just so their telemetry can tell them I've not used office, not even the free demo. And I'm not using edge. Nor am I using media player. Nor anything where I can find something nonMS to do the job. I'm not using their store. And if they check my browsing history it's all how to use linux, how to wipe SSD and install a new OS, how to get rid of win10 telemetry, how to tell MS to GFY, alternatives to MSoffice and the like. Collect data MS, I do not want you.

    ik9000 using a google product because you don't trust MS, is akin to moving to Syria because you are worried about the situation in France.

    oh don't get me wrong I'm not saying I'm safer or more private using Google. I use other stuff for anything sensitive. but it's a gratifying counter to do all my work presentations on Google slides and ignore the pushy reminders to activate ms office and buy a licence blah blah blah
